After a Hose Down

The silver birches in the Winter Garden at Anglesey Abbey are periodically hosed down. The bark, as you can see, is quite fragile and easily peels. In a couple of months masses of crimson coloured tulips will carpet the ground between the trees.
We have a neighbouring silver birch and love the changing bark. Look forward to the tulips.

I love the way the bark peels. I wonder why they hose it down, do you know?

Vanity! I guess they like them to look pristine. They polish other trees on the Winter Walk.
